I have been a member of Teachers Credit Union for 45years. I started teaching at Tranquility Boys Intermediate School, where Teachers Credit Union, as it is now called, was registered. I have served as Assistant Treasurer, Treasurer, Vice President and currently serve as President. While serving has been somewhat demanding at times, it is with great pleasure and satisfaction that I have witnessed the growth of Teachers Credit Union from assets of less than 1 million to assets in excess of 1 billion dollars.
